With Tumblr focusing so much on world politics right now, there is one British thing I haven’t seen much about, which is the news that a police smear campaign was set up to target the Lawrence family, and obstruct their chances of getting justice for their son.
Basically: a young black teenager was murdered, and the police sought to silence his friends and family – to make them out to be the villains, even – to take attention away from the calls for police reform.
It’s horrible. (And that’s not even the last of the police corruption stories coming out at the moment.) I have absolutely no idea how anyone would go about fixing a thing like this, so just…bear it in mind, I guess.
